Matte vs Glossy

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

To me, there are two definitive ends to the makeup spectrum… matte or glossy (at least when it comes to lipstick). It is one of those life long makeup debates about whats best and everyone has their own opinion on it. MATTE OR GLOSS??? 

Having collected a bit of an obsessive makeup collection over the years I have got a good combination of matte and glossy lippies under my belt (not literally obvs). But even if you only have a few you can defo make a judgement about which you prefer. I have safely though say I have no lip glosses in my makeup collection. I really don’t like lip glosses as I find they come with the faff of hair getting caught in it, it feeling heavy a sticky on the lips and I just am CBA for that!

Matte lipsticks I find suit my skin better. Liquid lipsticks have to be one of my makeup obsessions because I find they dry super quick and simply don’t rub off when eating – depending on the brand. I also love Mac Matte lipsticks because even though they appear matte they are very moisturizing and I truly feel they are one of the few brands that have got matte lipsticks RIGHT.

It is not just lipstick though. OHHHH NOOOO you thought wrong! The matte v glossy debate also can be put against hair styles, foundation and even eyeshadow. Yes eyeshadow! I have actually got a glossy eyeshadow from 3INA and I have to admit I am yet to try it, only because it is a baby pink, so I have been waiting for the nicer weather to come out for it to look all pretty and spring perfect!

A lot of people don’t like matte foundations and this can all really depend on the type of skin that you have. People with oily skin tend to go for matte foundations to counteract the oiliness, I have dry skin but I prefer a matte foundation because I just don’t always dig the glossy foundation look. If I want a more dewy look then I have the option of using highlighter.

What do you prefer matte or glossy???

    Well concerning the lip product, I like both, it just depends on my mood but I definitely prefer dewy foundation or semi-matte foundations even though I have an oily skin. Enjoyed reading your post xx

    Glossy all the way. Can’t get into the Matte trend

    Matte everything. All my lipsticks are matte, and I have oily skin so I need a matte base.

    Matte is definitely my go to; all my lipsticks are matte and the glossy base just doesn’t do it for me. <3
